    Default Randy Orton Drug Overdose

    Follow us on Social Media

    Randy Orton almost died from a drug overdose.

    If you know about Randy Orton's history, you'll know that trouble has followed him quite a bit. For much of his career, he has gotten himself into some sort of mischief. Drug abuse was one of the ways in which he found trouble. During a recent interview, Orton revealed that he abused drugs heavily for a period of time. In fact, he came close to dying once because of an overdose in 2006.

    "I was ashamed of it for a long time, but now talking about it and getting it off my chest—when my in-laws and mom watches it, they're going to cry. My wife talks about when I stopped breathing and the ambulance came."

    Randy Orton Defying Authority

    Admitting that he overdosed on drugs is not something that WWE will take too well. Vince McMahon and his staff have spent years trying to get the media and shareholders to believe that drug issues are a thing of the pasts in WWE. Randy Orton is defying authority by publicly discussing his personal demons. Then again, though, he's been showing that he simply will not adhere to all of the rules that the WWE public relations department has set aside for their wrestlers. Pretty sure that you can see actual steam coming out of McMahon's ears when he gets a word of this.

    Randy Orton Avoiding Wellness Program

    The WWE Wellness Program was officially launched on February 27, 2006. According to the company, it was that point that wrestlers were no longer able to abuse drugs and steroids. In the unlikelihood that his drug issues ended prior to that date, Randy Orton avoided the Wellness Program. It doesn't come as a surprise to most people, though, since superstars (i.e. profitable performers) are treated much differently than everyone else when it comes to the wrestling industry.

    i really don't see what this has to do with his career now there no evdince that he's doing drugs now and his past is just that in the past. the fact that he's admitting that he had a drug problem and almost died from an overdose is commendable in my opinion
